Hi I'm Lindsey Stimpson

I am a singer, dacncer, actor, equestrian, and lover of the outdoors, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Junior at BYU-I and I absolutely love it. I cannot say enough about that amazing school. I am a horse back rider and trainer, and compete regularly. In high school I won a national competition for public speaking and thuroughly enjoy it. My best friend is a Paint Mustang named Juniper who I trained. I am a big time singer, love music, and have been singing and dancing my whole life. Another of my passions is musical theatre and in high schol I did all of the musicals and plays. I enjoy being outdoors, hiking, camping, 4-wheeling, and living in the country. I love my family and am getting a degree in nursing.

Why I am a Mormon

There is too much that I can say! The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has given me more joy, fulfillment and true happiness than anything else in the world. There is something about being able to have a personal relationship with God that and gives so much comfort. It is more real than anything else I have experienced. I love a poem by Myra Welch titled, "The Touch of the Masters Hand:" "Twas battered and scarred, and the auctioneer thought it scarcely worth his while to waste much time on the old violin, but held it up with a smile; "What am I bidden, good folks," he cried, "Who'll start the bidding for me?" "A dollar, a dollar"; then two!" "Only two? Two dollars, and who'll make it three? Three dollars, once; three dollars twice; going for three.." But no, from the room, far back, a gray-haired man came forward and picked up the bow; Then, wiping the dust from the old violin, and tightening the loose strings, he played a melody pure and sweet as a caroling angel sings. The music ceased, and the auctioneer, with a voice that was quiet and low, said; "What am I bid for the old violin?" And he held it up with the bow. A thousand dollars, and who'll make it two? Two thousand! And who'll make it three? Three thousand, once, three thousand, twice, and going and gone," said he. The people cheered, but some of them cried, "We do not quite understand what changed its worth." Swift came the reply: "The touch of a master's hand." And many a man with life out of tune, and battered and scarred with sin, Is auctioned cheap to the thoughtless crowd, much like the old violin, A "mess of pottage," a glass of wine; a game - and he travels on. "He is going" once, and "going twice, He's going and almost gone." But the Master comes, and the foolish crowd never can quite understand the worth of a soul and the change that's wrought by the touch of the Master's hand." The Master's hand is so present in my life and that is why I'm a Mormon. Come see why we're different!

How I live my faith

This Gospel is a gospel of action. I love serving in callings and working in the temple. I think that we live our faith every second of every day. It is something that is not just something that we do for the social aspect or on Sundays. It occupies my thoughts and defines who I am. It is not passive; if it was, it would not elicit change in your life. Actively seeking and allowing Christ to change your life yields joy beyond measure.
